Cool First Versys and First Bike

Hey everyone! My names Caden and I recently just purchased my first bike (2009 Versys 650 13k miles) and developed a liking for this lifestyle instantly. I live in the greater Los Angeles area and although the traffic gets bad nothing beats a nice ride up the coast. Anyways I'm looking forward to gathering all the info I can from this forum and growing more into the sport.

Congrats. Have you taken an MSF or similar training course yet?

Welcome and enjoy your new ride. The MSF course is an excellent idea and worthwhile for so many reasons.

Yep, ACH is a great ride. I like to go all the way into Wrightwood to have breakfast at The Grizzly Cafe. During the weekdays you almost have the road to yourself....
